Focused Technology Solutions is the recent winner of four major contracts for the first ever battery-operated spike puller, the “SpikeEase.”

The SpikeEase can increase productivity, reduce injuries, and can pulls spikes in an average of 3 to 7 seconds, according to manufacturer Focused Technology Solutions. The SpikeEase weighs less than 30 lbs and aims to eliminate the need for hydraulics and the claw bar.

Peter Bartek, president and CEO of Focused Technology Solutions, said the company received orders from a soon-to-be-named Class 1; Ameritrack Rail, leaders in track construction services, RailTek, a top distributor of rail products out of Philadelphia, Pa., and Railroad Tools and Solutions, a major distributor out of Cincinnati, Ohio.

“The fact that the SpikeEase can pull spikes without the physical impact on our employees allows us to do more work safer without sacrificing speed or power,” said Tim Lawler, the vice president and general manager of Ameritrack.

Focused Technology Solutions says its state of the art technology fits the company’s mission statement, which is “to be first in category and first to market in the expanding transportation sector.”
